About this artwork

Watercolour played a significant role in Delacroix’s graphic work throughout his career. He would have been introduced to the technique by the example of many English artists, including his friend Richard Parkes Bonington, who visited France after the end of the Napoleonic Wars. In its topography and its suggestion of a damp, rain-filled day, this watercolour suggests the landscape of northern France or the Loire valley. It has not been possible to identify the location, or to establish the date with any certainty.
